Renault Compatibility
« on: January 06, 2015, 11:27:16 PM »
Does anyone know if EasyobdII kit is fully compatible with Renaults (post 2001).  Many say you have to use the specialist Renault Clip unit.  I know of ELM based scanners/software that can connect but fail to detect pending faults that are known to have occurred intermittently and are therefore presumably stored on the ECU.

If the vehicle is fully OBDII compliant then pending codes should work. These are codes that have occurred driving the last or current driving cycle but not yet turned on the MIL lamp. OBDII systems do not normally show historic data , for example if the pending / stored faults have cleared then nothing will show until the fault returns.
